Support your colleagues, students, and fellow scientists and engineers’ noteworthy contributions by nominating them for an ECS award! They deserve to be recognized for their hard work and accomplishments.
Student awards are a significant part of the ECS Honors & Awards Program. These awards support and provide opportunities for students as they progress in their careers—and acknowledge their dedication and outstanding achievements in electrochemical and solid state science and technology fields of study.
The Society, its sections, and divisions field these student awards: (more…)
The ECS Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering (IE&EE) Division recognizes and rewards promising young engineers and scientists in the fields of electrochemical engineering and applied electrochemistry with two special awards. Congratulations to Akshay Subramaniam who received the IE&EE Division Student Achievement Award, and Eric McShane, winner of the IE&EE Division H. H. Dow Memorial Student Achievement Award.
The IE&EE Division Student Achievement Award was established in 1989. The IE&EE Division H. H. Dow Memorial Student Achievement Award was established in 1990 with a gift from the Dow Chemical Company Foundation to encourage recipients to continue careers in electrochemical engineering or applied electrochemistry. Both awards require that nominees describe a research project that they will pursue during the award year, and how that project relates to the field of electrochemical engineering or applied electrochemistry. The recipients of the awards each receive a framed certificate and US $1,000 prize. The IE&EE Division H. H. Dow Memorial Student Achievement Award restricts use of the award to expenses associated with the recipient’s education or research project, i.e., tuition, books, equipment, or supplies. (more…)
On June 14, 78 graduate and undergraduate students from around the world received notification that their posters had been chosen for exhibition at the Z01 General Student Poster Session at the 240th ECS Meeting in Orlando, FL, from October 10-14, 2021. The poster session is a forum for students to present research results to ECS meeting attendees including the most active researchers in electrochemistry and solid state science and technology. Students choose to be part of the competition for cash awards recognizing the best poster presentations.
Students submitted 41 posters to the 239th ECS Meeting Z01 General Student Poster Session. Judges reviewed the digital presentations and chose the following for awards. Congratulations to the winners!
Please take a moment to celebrate the excellent work of the authors listed below. If you missed viewing the poster presentations, they are accessible online through June 26, 2021. There is no fee, however registration for the meeting is required. (more…)
Nominate a deserving student today!
While we often reflect on the Society’s impressive history, it is also important to look to the future. The next generation of scientists and engineers will solve the seemingly insurmountable challenges facing society today—sustainability, water cleanliness, climate change, and disease, to name just a few.
Student awards—part of the ECS Honors and Awards Program—support the next generation of scientists by expanding opportunities as they progress in their careers. These awards acknowledge student and early career scientists’ dedication and outstanding achievements in their fields of study. (more…)
The ECS Korea Section Student Award was established in 2005 to recognize academic accomplishments in any area of science or engineering in which electrochemical and/or solid state science and technology is the central consideration. To qualify for this award, applicants must (1) be a student who is pursuing a PhD at a Korean University, (2) be nominated by a university faculty member and (3) be a member of ECS at the time of the nomination.

Yuzhang Li is a PhD student working with Professor Yi Cui on next-generation energy storage technologies at Stanford University. His research approach seeks to tackle problems from both an applied and fundamental perspective, which is necessary for the development of high energy density batteries. (more…)
The winner of the 2018 Canada Section Student Award is Shuai Chen!
Shuai (Sharon) Chen graduated from Lakehead University with an MSc in electrochemistry. She worked on fundamental studies of Pd based materials for hydrogen storage and purification. Her research provided a thoughtful guidance for commercial hydrogen purification films. During this period, she was awarded a travel grant from the ECS Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division and the High Output and Publication Excellence Award from Lakehead University.
The ECS Outstanding Student Chapter Award was established in 2012 to recognize distinguished student chapters that demonstrate active participation in The Electrochemical Society’s technical activities, establish community and outreach activities in the areas of electrochemical and solid state science and engineering education, and create and maintain a robust membership base.
Click here for complete rules and nomination requirements. Nominations are being accepted for the 2018 award, which will be presented at the AiMES 2018 meeting in Cancun, Mexico from September 30 – October 4, 2018.
The recipient of the Outstanding Student Chapter Award receives a recognition plaque, $1,000 USD in additional student chapter funding, and additional recognition throughout the Society in Interface, the ECS blog, etc.
